  1. Thanks so much for this! I have a question though. When I downloaded my theme, I checked the assets folder and it didn't have any of my uploaded image files in it. There were only the original theme files and nothing I've added to the site. Can you advise what I might be doing wrong?

  2. You said at the beginning of the video that this will remove the Meta Data from all the images….so will affect SEO?

  3. This only works for MAC, not on Windows

  4. No 15 second intro? No self promotion? Just a quick and dirty and very informative video on Shopify image SEO? Finally! Much respect, Kurt, thank you!

  5. Thanks so much! Bought a new theme and sales tanked, after pulling my hair out, I finally uncovered this as being my issue. Used your method, size of zipped theme went from 3.4 to 3.2. Appreciate it!

  6. I like the way you say image optim the first time hahaha good job man nice video! Very clear and simple! Keep it up

  7. Hi, do you just upload the specific ZIP file with optimised images or the whole downloaded theme but replace the images that you initially used with ZIP file of optimised images?
